Simple Weekend Beauty: Stay Home!



That is grape juice, not coffee for anyone wondering! :) Staying home is such a delight and really helps the day to last longer!

Simple Weekend Beauty: Girls Lunch


We had a fun girls day out last Saturday - lunch, thrift store, hitting the outlets. It was relaxing and a sweet time together!

Sky Watching


The girls ballet studio is near the water and since it is in the evening, frequently the sky is mesmerizing as I sit and wait. Last Thursday, I brought my camera and I'm so glad I did. I would read a few pages, snap a photo, read a few pages, snap a photo. I had to keep rolling the window up and down because it was a little too cool to leave down and let's face it - that near the water - the gnats are usually dreadful.

Hope you enjoy this little photo progression of the sky - these were taken over about a 30 minute time frame.










"Lift up your eyes to the sky, Then look to the earth beneath; For the sky will vanish like smoke, And the earth will wear out like a garment And its inhabitants will die in like manner; But My salvation will be forever, And My righteousness will not wane."  ~ Isaiah 51:6

Celebrating New Life


Last week, we celebrated Rachel's 7th Christian Birthday! I love having this on the calendar but unlike other holidays and celebrations, I have never landed on what is just the right thing to do to honor this day. So this means we usually end up doing something different every time.

It usually involves flowers {life} and something sweet as a treat {celebration} - this year, I did not plan ahead at all. The night before the idea came to mind to do a New Life walk where we simply went around our neighborhood looking for signs of new life.

A quick trip to the grocery store yielded tulips and Little Debbie snack cakes. Setting a fun lunch table before our walk was fun and simple! The little butterflies were left from an Easter dinner some years ago {free printable found here} and a few Scrabble letters to create a meaningful message!
